Additional Details

Originally published: New York : Grosset & Dunlap, c1980.

Fledging -- Pilot -- Fly a crooked sky -- If I'm a kid doctor, where's my jar of lollipops? -- Law degree is just an illegal technicality -- Paperhanger in a Rolls-Royce -- How to tour Europe on a felony a day -- Small crew will do-it's just a paper airplane -- Does this tab include the tip? -- Put out an APB-Frank Abagnale has escaped!

The world's most sought-after con man wrote $2.5 million in bad checks, practiced law without a license, practiced medicine with no medical training, and co-piloted a Pan Am Jet with a fake license. Slated for production at Dream Works Entertainment, and now updated with a new Afterworld, Catch Me If You Can contains all of the elements of the most wildly imaginative fiction, except that Abagnale's exploits actually happened.

Facinating Man

I met Frank back in the early 80's when he was promoting this book. He has an amazing story and is a great speaker. He has a way of earning trust and crediblity that is utterly amazing. A great read - and it's true!

Man of a 1000 faces

Great for reluctant readers (primarily young men, I'd say). A page-turner. How can it be so easy to impersonate so many professionals? (Hint: public-library research plays a big part.)
